Paddy will be attempting to break records for the most boxing upper cuts in one minute (held by Jim Hoover USA) and the most martial arts strikes in 5 minutes.
Providing Paddy’s efforts prove to be successful and injury free he will go on to attempt the record for the most martial arts strikes in 15 minutes, a record currently held by Ron Sarchian from the United States and an hour long record for the same discipline of 11,557 strikes currently held by Australian Anthony Kelly.
The attempts will take place in Staminas Gym, Erin Ga Bra Sports Centre, Holly Lane, Erdington between 7 and 8pm. Any Balsall Common residents wishing to attend will be most welcome. If you’d like to attend email firstname.lastname@example.org for details/tickets.”
